2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Toyota Tacoma

The 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2019 Toyota Tacoma are both world-renowned pickups, but if you came here expecting a competition that would keep you on the edge of your seat, you might be surprised at what you find. The F-150 is a full size pickup, while the Tacoma is a mid-size pickup. Although both models certainly have strong points that drivers on Guam will appreciate, the Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tacoma matchup only shows that the F-150 is bigger, stronger, and more capable!

Performance and Utility: F-150 vs. Tacoma

  • The Tacoma is available in six different trim levels, ranging in price from $25,850 MSRP to $42,960 MSRP. The F-150 starts at $28,155 MSRP, and is offered in seven trims. The range-topping Limited comes in at $67,135 MSRP.
  • The Toyota Tacoma is only available with two engines, a 2.7-liter I4 and a 3.5-liter V6. The F-150, for its own part, is offered with six different engines. Even the base engine beats out both of the Tacoma options.
  • The Tacoma only has a maximum towing capacity of 6,800 pounds. The F-150 beats this maximum with its base engine, which is rated for 7,400 pounds. When properly equipped, the Ford F-150 can tow up to 13,200 pounds.
  • With three different Ford F-150 bed sizes to choose from, it’s easy to find a configuration that has exactly what you need. Both its regular and short cabs offer more cargo space than comparable options on the Tacoma, and the latter doesn’t even offer a long bed.

An Off-Road Pickup for Guam Drivers: Tacoma or F-150

If you’re interested in comparing the Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tacoma, there’s a good chance that reports of the new Tacoma model’s off-road prowess brought you here. However, only the F-150 offers an off-road trim that can truly tackle any challenge. Here’s how they measure up:

  • We do have to hand it to the Toyota for offering two off-road-focused trims at price points that might seem attractive. There’s the Tacoma TRD Off-Road, for $33,800 MSRP, and the Tacoma TRD Pro, for $42,960 MSRP.
  • Neither Tacoma off-road trim can hold a candle to the Ford F-150 Raptor. The TRD Pro offers skid plates and heavy duty shocks. The Raptor adds these, plus more powerful engine, wider front/rear tracks, enormous all-terrain tires, skid plates, and more durable control arms. You’ll also enjoy unique all-terrain driving modes, all for $52,855 MSRP.

Since the Raptor is considerably more expensive than either of the Tacoma off-road trims, we’d understand if you were still tempted to make the conservative choice. However, we think drivers who opt for the more powerful truck will feel well-rewarded in the long-term. What’s more, they’ll drive with the confidence that nothing can hold them back!
